One that meets the highest national standards for hockey, tennis and
netball and that is ideal for community use.
Just £10 will secure 1 square metre of the new pitch. YOU will become a

The current All Weather Pitch is over 15 years old and will soon become
A sand-dressed pitch (England Hockey Category 1), ideal for multi-sport

Hockey is a team sport played by all ages, abilities, genders and ethnicities
in over 138 countries.
The Women’s World Cup in London in July and the Men’s World Cup in
India in December 2018 will see extensive live television coverage worldwide.
It is a popular and well-established sport. Club hockey has increased
by 40% and under 16 players by 80% since 2011. Participation by girls will
double by 2018 (England Hockey). It is a top five school sport nationally.
While it proves increasingly popular in Crawley Primary Schools there is no
provision in the Secondary Schools for development and match play.
The new pitch will provide a centre of excellence locally and secure hockey
in Crawley for the future.
Crawley has the largest population in West Sussex. There is huge potential
to increase participation in sport with benefits in health and well-being.
CHC has initiated an innovative partnership with Hazelwick School to
promote sport and physical activities across all ages for the next 20 years.
A partnership will enable you to be involved in the construction of this
unique sporting facility. It will provide opportunities for new activities and
disabled access, breaking down barriers and increasing social cohesion.
Sport and physical activity enhance fitness, mental resilience, teamwork,
leadership skills and promote high levels of enjoyment.
